|Sadayatana 116: Caverns of Dream - John Tocher|
That was the end of our voluntary searchings in the caverns of dream. Awed, shaken, and portentous, my friend who had been beyond the barrier warned me that we must never venture within those realms again. - H. P.

|Sadayatana 122: Speed and Violence - John Tocher|
I think the key image of the 20th century is the man in the motor car. It sums up everything: the elements of speed, drama, aggression, the junction of advertising and consumer goods with the technological landscape. The sense of violence and desire, power and energy; the shared experience of moving together through an elaborately signalled landscape. We spend a substantial part of our lives in the motor car, and the experience of driving condenses many of the experiences of being a human being....

|Sadayatana 092: Night Of A Thousand Crimes - John Tocher|
When I got home I mixed a stiff one and stood by the open window in the living room and sipped it and listened to the groundswell of traffic on Laurel Canyon Boulevard and looked at the glare of the big angry city hanging over the shoulder of the hills through which the boulevard had been cut. Far off the banshee wail of police or fire sirens rose and fell, never for very long completely silent. Twenty four hours a day somebody is running, somebody else is trying to catch him...

|Sadayatana 104: Experience Of Time - John Tocher|
The only experience of time that one can have is of a subjective time that is created by one's own mental processes, but in relationship to the Newtonian universe there is no time whatsoever. One exists in eternity, one has become eternal, the universe is aging at a staggering rate all around one in this situation, but that is perceived as a fact of this universe — the way we perceive Newtonian physics as a fact of this universe...

|Sadayatana 084: Listen and Dream - John Tocher|
There are not many persons who know what wonders are opened to them in the stories and visions of their youth; for when as children we listen and dream, we think but half-formed thoughts, and when as men we try to remember, we are dulled and prosaic with the poison of life. But some of us awake in the night with strange phantasms of enchanted hills and gardens, of fountains that sing in the sun, of golden cliffs overhanging murmuring seas, of plains that stretch down to sleeping cities of bronze...

|Sadayatana 071: The Dark - John Tocher|
The show starts with another mashup of Mystified's music. An old 78 that was more groovy noise than anything else. The show featured a live set from Joel Sutton in his guise as Crystal Dreams, thank you Joel for a dark ambient set. New Zreen Toyz, The Implicit Order and the music of Vladimir Hirsch were both featured to good effect. A fun show that closed with another 78 personally recorded for Sadayatana by CP McDill...

|Sadayatana 047: Secret Souls - John Tocher|
This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes. Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes, but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on "Calm, Happy Whispers", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt...

|Sadayatana 085: Control A Dream - John Tocher|
I believe that the truth of the matter is far more terrifying, that the real truth that dare not speak itself is that no one is in control, absolutely no one. This stuff is ruled by the equations of dynamics and chaos. There may be entities seeking control, but to seek control is to take enormous aggravation upon yourself. It's like trying to control a dream. - Terence McKenna, Dreaming Awake at the End of Time (1998) startartisttitle00:00OmbientLive on Sadayatana59:19Bing SatellitesLoop 962:15...

|Sadayatana 055: Haunted Ruins - John Tocher|
...like knight and maiden meeting to exchange vows amongst haunted ruins. The starlight was good enough for that story, a light so faint and remote that it cannot resolve shadows into shapes, and show the other shore of a stream. I did look upon the stream that night and from the very place; it rolled silent and as black as Styx: the next day I went away, but I am not likely to forget what it was she wanted to be saved from when she entreated him to leave her while there was time...

|Sadayatana 160: Eternity Remains - John Tocher|
Be it life or death, we crave only reality. If we are really dying, let us hear the rattle in our throats and feel cold in the extremities; if we are alive, let us go about our business. Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains. - Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854) startartisttitle00:00MetamorfrozenStorms of Neptune00:57Malevolent Alien BeingComet26:32cdrxTra...

|Sadayatana 066: Time Zero - John Tocher|
This one fashioned from tracks selected at random 10 minutes before show time. Not random exactly but picked via some secret intelligence built into a program I wrote. My way of collaborating with God so to speak. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too. The usual crunchy ambient sounds with drone, sound collage and some looping. Includes music of Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, Akumu, Argedco Dosig G Manin, Backyard Ghost, Barbara Schubert, Dupage Symphony Orchestra, Chris Carter, Cisfinitum, Cl...

|Sadayatana 074: Suffusion of Darkness - John Tocher|
Unreleased track from Dan Miñoza and The Implicit Order: "Eyes Catch Fire". Hey I think that name is inspired by Buddhist on Fire... New from Webbed Hand Records, The title track from: "Eta Carinae – Rest". A couple new releases from Treetrunk Records: Gutterhulk and Conure. Tracks with serial killer samples by Deafness: "Victim". Sorry about that. I like them though. Jeffrey Dahmer talking to someone about creationism...

|Sadayatana 088: Bizarre And Flawed - John Tocher|
I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you...
